The return to nature is playing an ever-greater role in almost all areas of modern life. Today’s interior architecture, for instance, is increasingly coming to resemble landscape compositions: carpets are being laid out like fields, abstract pieces of furniture stand in the room as solid as rocks, and we are sleeping amidst gently rolling hills of cushions and covers.
But the design of the furniture itself is also increasingly taking its cues from nature. “Lemon”, a new armchair by Kati Meyer-Brühl, likewise has its roots in the natural world.
With its elegant, organic, leaf-like segments it forms a silhouette that resembles a blooming flower bud. The armchair fans out into five elongated leaf-shaped sections which taper towards the top, giving the piece a crown-like contour.
With Lemon the upholsterer Brühl wants to present a refreshingly vital, decorative and unique piece of furniture that combines elementariness with Mediterranean flair, adding an exuberant air to living rooms and lobbies. Arranged in a group, the armchairs invite companionship.
Base and seat/backrest can either be covered in the same colour, or in the same, elastic stretch wool fabric, cotton or leather in different colours. Individual slip-on covers are available for the leaf segments as a fun accessory to add colourful or floral accents.
The deep, softly upholstered seat; the alternating, either convex or concave elements, and the slightly cupped shape of the leaf segments mould themselves to the body to provide maximum relaxation and comfort, made perfect by the addition of a matching, handcrafted-looking, organically shaped stool. The light, nature-inspired colours are about to emphasise the overall effect of perfect harmony.
